We have reached the closing date for the Regular HEAP Benefit component as of Friday, March 17, 2017.
The Emergency HEAP Benefit component has the closing date of Friday, March 31, 2017.
Emergency Benefits are available for a household’s main source of heat (if the Regular Benefit is exhausted and if service is off, or if there is a shut off notice, or a low fuel supply), and for “heat related” electric (if electricity is needed to run heating equipment, thermostat, furnace fan, etc.).
For emergency assistance, clients are encouraged to visit the HEAP Office at 478 Main St., Buffalo, 8am-4pm, or call the HEAP Hotline at 858-7644.
We in Erie County look forward to assisting and serving our community next HEAP season!
